Description:

Next door neighbour's garden, actually. Got a phone call just after 8:00am from her to say there was a bird of prey in her garden. By the time I'd gathered my camera, the Sparrowhawk had moved from its plucking area (see other post) and taken the pigeon to the back of her garden. Just as well, because I got a better view... These photos were from my bedroom window.
Thanks, Wilma!
